Santos Tour Down Under returns to Barossa in 2023

The Barossa will again host the Santos Tour Down Under men’s race in 2023, marking the return of international cycling to South Australia. 

Santos Tour Down Under Race Director, Stuart O’Grady OAM said the Ziptrak Stage 1 on Wednesday, January 18 will feature a Tanunda start and finish. 

Ziptrak Stage 1 of the 2023 Santos Tour Down Under men’s race is all about the beautiful Barossa,” he said. 

“Tanunda will host the stage start and finish – plus both its sprints – with the peloton also due to tackle four ascents of Menglers Hill. Two of these will offer king of the mountains points. 

“Fans are invited to settle in as the world’s best cyclists travel through the region. Expect a blistering sprint finish along Tanunda’s Murray Street – the first from this direction in Santos Tour Down Under history.” 

The UCI World Tour event will be held in Adelaide and regional South Australia from January 13-22 2023. 

First-class cricket action on the way

The Barossa Council CEO, Martin McCarthy welcomed the return of the WBBL, saying the competition has a strong local following. 

“We’re thrilled to work alongside SACA, Nuriootpa Cricket Club and Nuriootpa Centennial Park Authority to bring yet another high quality sporting fixture to the Barossa this summer, and we’re confident of seeing big crowds turn out once again to see the Strikers’ women in action,” he said.
